    Today has been a fantastic day for my budding collection. I purchased a couple pop cards from @GRFMotorsports to display nicely next to my splice & half jacket pairs I already had. I also traded a bunker to @pjd1234 for a few items in a new JFL ice iridium, dog tag and 2 older display props. Lastly I was up to no good on the ol interwebs and found my very first Juliet for sale at a price I couldn't refuse (Although almost 3 hours away from me). Had the day off and I decided to call and confirm it was still available so I said what the hell, lets go get em! Made it an Oakley trip after picking up the Juliets and stopped into the Local O store to see if they had anything I couldn't resist and stopped at the O Vault to find a few pieces for the new pair I just aquired. I ended up picking up 2 sets of black rubber and 1 set of rootbeer rubber for the Juliets, 1 BI and 1 Ice lenses as well to boot! All in all quite a memorable day. The Juliets will need @THE X-MAN's help to bring them back to life as they flop in your hands worse than any other pair I have ever seen in person but they are a starting point! Can someone help ID them for me? I was thinking Carbon/BIP but the lenses seem too light for BIP. I am still partially scared someone is gonna say they are fakes but I looked for the tale-tale signs that I knew of regarding screws instead of the rivets but these did not have a serial #. I know it's not a for sure just makes it a little more unnerving when buying a frame for the first time. On to the pics!

    And for some reason I have a desire to get the Juliets redone to mimic this pair:

    Keep them in the same family colorway or switch it up? I am looking for a bit more beyond style I think for my first Juliet as I got some more subdued Half-X frames in Carbon & X-Metal frames.

    Thanks for checking out the newest additions for me :cool-20:

    The juliet is real, but the pic with the gold orbitals and arms are fake, imho

    Yes, that pair are fakes, the orbital cut (or lack of one) is the most obvious clue.

    Sounds like an awesome day and just a great spread. Your Juliets look good, just a later gen.

    I also love the cover the end of one ear stem with a bag and not have the other in focus trick, classic fake pic!

    Thanks everyone :)

    I already had the splices just picked up the pop card for it. The Juliet and the JFL are new though.

    Any thoughts or ideas on a custom route to go? I'm really feeling like a TIO look with maybe x-metal/24k combo. Not too sure on the lens/rubber choice in that though.
